  • Dr. Claire DeChristina

    Dr. Claire DeChristina lives with her family and pets on a farmette just outside of Stoughton. Originally from Chicago, Dr. D moved to Wisconsin in the late 70's. After working in industry for several years, she attended veterinary school at the University of Wisconsin, graduating in 1988. Her kinship with animals began early in life with her menagerie of pets including dogs, guinea pigs, doves & pigeons, mice and hamsters. Becoming involved with showing and breeding dogs as an adult moved her into the field of veterinary medicine. (Besides, her husband said she couldn't have a horse until she went to vet school.) Her current menagerie includes a horse, 2 Portuguese water dogs, 6 cats, an elderly ring-necked dove, and 3 rescue fish. In addition to caring for them and her family Dr. D's passions include needlework, gardening, hiking and camping.
